Focal countries: Slovakia, Poland, Czech Republic Hungary

Main tasks:

preparation of national lists of endemic, sub-endemic and

Annex II species, including mosses

fill in data on occurrence of species within orographic units

to assign its affinity to landcover units and optimal range

(minimal/maximal) of an altitude in which it occurs


PREPARATION OF NATIONAL LISTS OF PLANT

SPECIES

list of 486 SPECIES from 2001 was used as reference

problematic taxons of genus Rubus, Taraxacum and

Alchemilla were excluded

country experts checked occurrences of endemic and

Annex II species

update of the list was made, commented by countries

and discussed on the meeting

PROBLEMS

Which endemic species should be included

Which nomenclature to use

Synonyms


RESULTS

201 plant species, including 35 AnnexII species and 3 priority species
